Urban Tortilla

Urban Tortilla

K-Dog (Our West Coast Correspondent) – 11/4/2017


Well steamed, but a little large for the amount of filling. Though the ratio was ever so slightly off, the texture was nice and only got chewy near the ends. All in all, it maintained structural integrity and held in the contents admirably while not overwhelming any of the other flavors. 

Rating: 5/10


This burrito was a little “one note” texture wise. The eggs were well-scrambled and were a highlight. As with most airport food, I expected them to be powdered and reconstituted eggs. Not so! Fresh eggs cooked on site. And, as it’s in San Francisco, I can only assume the chef knew the name of the hen who laid them. Sadly, though, the potatoes were overcooked (more on that later). The tomatoes for the pico de gallo were a bit mealy, and the onions were similarly none too fresh. I chose ham as a meat – and it’s chew was the most noteworthy texture. All in all, the eggs saved the burrito in terms of texture and is the biggest factor in the score.

This burrito tasted wonderful! The potatoes were well seasoned, but not too salty. The pico de gallo was tasty and had the perfect kick of jalapeƱo and cilantro. The ham was smoked and added the perfect amount of salt and flavor. All in all the flavors blended well. The cheese was bland – sharp cheddar could have really brought it all home.

Rating: 8/10

Use of Potatoes

As stated earlier, the potatoes were overcooked and they started to fall apart in the burrito. That being said, the ratio of potato to egg was perfect. The seasoning on the potatoes added to the burrito well.

Rating: 4/10


Sadly, this was not an option.



For an airport BB, Urban Tortilla really delivered an excellent product for hungry travelers looking for one last blast of mission-style burrito goodness.
